NEWTON - Patrick Jordan III of Reading has been named interim president of Newton-Wellesley Hospital, effective August 1. The current president, Michael Jellinek, MD, will step down due to his increasing responsibilities as Chief of Clinical Affairs at Partners HealthCare System.

Jordan has been with Newton-Wellesley Hospital since 2001, where he started as Senior Vice President for Administration and more recently Chief Operating Officer. He has been responsible for leadership of a variety of departments, and was instrumental in the implementation of the Hospital’s fiscal recovery plan over a decade ago.

“It is impossible to overstate Dr. Jellinek’s contributions to Newton-Wellesley Hospital,” said Jordan. “I am sad to see him go but fully understand that he must devote his attention to the work that lies ahead for Partners in order to prepare Newton-Wellesley and the rest of the system for success in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. I look forward to working with our outstanding executive leadership and building upon his great work, while continuing to deliver the Hospital’s mission to care for every patient as a beloved family member.”

Prior to joining Newton-Wellesley Hospital, Jordan worked at Massachusetts General Hospital, where he was Administrative Director of Radiology. Radiology is the second largest department at MGH responsible for over 400,000 exams and $300 million in gross charges annually. During his three-year tenure in this position, Jordan led very successful efforts to improve service to patients and physicians, reduce costs, introduce new technology and manage a major rebuilding program. Prior to his leadership of the Radiology Department, Jordan was the Manager of Patient Care Services in Materials Management.

Jordan earned his bachelor’s degree from Fitchburg State College and an Executive MBA from Suffolk University. Prior to working at MGH, Jordan served for seven years in the 82nd Airborne Division and Special Operations Command. He was promoted to the rank of Captain during the invasion of Panama and was awarded the Bronze Star during the Persian Gulf War. Jordan is a member of the Suffolk University Alumni Board of Trustees, as well as a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

A Stoneham native, Jordan is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Patrick F. Jordan Jr. and currently resides in Reading with his wife and two children.

    If he is unable to handle such responsibilities then it is better for him to let someone take his place. However, there have been many changes in the field of healthcare services. If you need medical transportation Houston TX area, you have to contact Amera Medical Transportation.

    For any person no matter how skilled they are, handling so much responsibilities is not easy. However, now finding a good doctor in Brooklyn or in London is simpler, because most health professionals have online presence now.

    Right now he should be concentrating on providing better healthcare service. They should also open new sections in the hospital for offering alternative treatment methods like medical acupuncture.

    The manager of the hospital is also important, if he does a good job running the hospital's affairs, the hospital gets all the credits and the patients begin to trust its services and come here to get treated. If you want to see an excellent hospital, then take a look at Atlantic General and make it your role model.

    Everything has changed nowadays! For every medical problem are some specialized clinics which treat the problem properly and with professionalism. You only have to find these clinics and for that a detailed research is mandatory. For instance, at you can find the best eye solutions with many good patients' reviews. This is only one example of an excellent clinic.
